Awful name aside, 10000000
has become a strong frontrunner for my iOS GOTY at this point. It combines a unique style of match-3 gameplay (think Popcap's Chuzzle
) with awesome retro graphics and a ton of RPG elements. Took a little while to get the hang of, but I absolutely cannot stop playing it now. A couple "a ha" moments for me as I started:
1. There are no HP, per se. Rather, when an enemy hits you, it knocks you further back in the corridor. Shields and armor prevent you from being knocked back by enemy attacks, so upgrading these are critical if you want to be able to survive longer.
2. Don't be stingy about using items...you'll get plenty. I got in the habit of saving items and using them as a last resort, but have started using multiple items now in every game.
I'm only up to around 3,000,000 at this point and can see this one lasting for a lot longer (10000000 gets you out of the dungeon, hence the name). Two huge thumbs up from me.
EDIT: Beat this today, took just under 4 hours (3:56). Everything maxed out, high score just over 13,500,000. There's one objective I can't seem to beat (match 50 tiles in under 50 seconds).
